What in the World is Patrick Coffin Doing?

by Steve Ray on October 2, 2016

Patrick and I do a "live show" together on a bus in Ireland! What fun! Patrick and I do a “live show” together on a bus in Ireland! What fun!

Patrick Coffin has been the host of Catholic Answers Live for seven and a half years. He raised the show to stellar heights but September 30th was his last day. He is leaving Catholic Answers for new ventures in media. You can watch his 3-minute video for an overview of his new media projects. It might not be a bad idea to help support him as he gets this worthy project under way. Visit his new website here. God bless Patrick!

He wrote this to me:

Sept 30 is my last on-air day at CA. I’ve had a fantastic seven and a half years hosting Catholic Answers Live and the podcast Catholic Answers Focus. But I’ve got big plans for a broad, more culturally engaging platform, driven by a free podcast, a YouTube channel, and a myth-busting video series. 

I was privileged to join his last show on September 30 as we reminisced about his long stint on Catholic Answers Live and my monthly shows with him over the years – 90 shows at least. You can listen to that “Farewell Show” here or download the podcast here.


This was a fun interview. Starts with my conversion and continues to discuss and show portions of Steve’s documentaries on St. Paul and also Apostolic Fathers. Enjoy! If you would like to help us continue the series — and finish the last two episodes please make a contribution at Thanks.

As reported in an Aug. 29 story at the Christian Post, the 60-year-old Gibson went to Evangelical event SoCal Harvest at Angel Stadium in Anaheim on Sunday, Aug. 28, and sat down for an onstage interview with megapastor Greg Laurie.

Sporting a beard of Old Testament proportions, Gibson reportedly said:

“We’re talking about that. Of course, that is a huge undertaking,” Gibson said. “And you know, it’s not the ‘Passion 2.’ It’s called ‘The Resurrection.’ Of course, that’s a very big subject and it needs to be looked at because we don’t want to just do a simple rendering of it — you know, read what happened.”

“But in order to read it, experience and explore probably deeper meanings of what it’s about, it’s going to take some doing and Randall Wallace is up to the task,” Gibson continued. “He is also, as well as a brilliant writer, he is a great director. He directed ‘We Were Soldiers’ and ‘Heaven is for Real’ and stuff. So, he is a good writer and director.”
